I recently installed a 10mw transmitter and CMOS micro camera on a rubber-band powered plane of mine (the system ended up being a little heavy which, for now, is beside the point) and I am encountering some difficulty with the stability of the video. For some reason, I can't seem to get a static/interference free image for more than a second or two at a time.

I have attached a jpeg which shows the layout of the system (incidentally the plane ended up being extremely tail heavy). The battery I used is 3.7 volt Li-ion with around 200 mah current. The battery is powering both the transmitter and the camera simultaneously. Could this be the culprit?

Also, a video sample can be viewed at: http://www.williamwhited.com/FPVhelp.html

I thank you so much for your time and willingness to help!

The video looks normal to me. You will always get breaks in the picture when walking about indoors.

Are you sure it's powered by 1 3.7v cell ? seems a bit low to me. Some transmitters are 3.3v but I don't know of any 3.3v cameras.
